I've just subscribed to alt.test and posted a message there,
using NewsHound, to port 8119.  So: It Works For Me (TM).

I can't post to port 119, but when I try I get a different
error message: "You are not allowed to post to..."  I looked
at this last night, and I can see why it fails, but that may
or may not help you.  If I understand correctly, nobody can
post to eternal september port 119 using NewsHound because of
the incompatibility.

I've tried deliberately giving a wrong passord; this results
in not even being able to read news, so it confirms that I'm
using valid credentials.

Sorry, not much help.

Dave
